Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm looking for someone who is open minded and enjoys learning
about the world and different cultures. I have a really dark sense
of humor so the guy I'm looking for should probably not get
offended easily. I love a good sense of wit and clever
conversation. I'm passionate about the things and people I love,
but all in all I'm a fairly practical person (though I do enjoy my
moments of spontaneity). I would love to meet someone who is a
little more rugged, I love being outdoors and I would love if I
could find someone who will encourage me to explore nature more. I
also REALLY appreciate a man who can be honest with me whether I
may like it or not.
I speak French and I'm flubbing around with Spanish. Not even sure
flubbing is a word. I'm fascinated by other languages and I want to
tackle German and Chinese at some point in time. I also enjoy the
English language and if you 'ain't doing nuthen' or you 'seen
something' on tv recently, we're probably not meant for each
I recently returned from my third trip to England and first time to
Scotland. I've been to a number of countries in Europe but my next
ambition is to travel to Peru and Colombia. I want to climb Machu
Picchu (yes, actually climb it, not take the stupid tour bus to the
To relieve stress I go to the gym or I do yoga. I'd love to do a
triathlon some day if my bum knees don't get to me first....or my
bicycle doesn't break down. I really enjoy being outdoors,
especially in the summer. Camping, festivals, beaches, dancing,
baseball, you name it, I'm there. I love going to shows at
Millennium Park and Summer Dance in Grant Park. On days when its
warm enough you can find me on one of Chicago's many beaches (and
on mornings when I've pulled an all nighter you also might find me
swimming in the lake at 5am in my skivvies). I'm a big Sox fan so
if you're going to post those cubs jersey pics (you guys know the
ones I mean) be ready for a couple of jibes. If you don't live in
the Chicago land area and you have more than a decade on me, please
just move along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
School and work! Currently studying International Relations with a
focus in Political Finance
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dancing!! Love it and if it's any type of Latin dance then I have
it down, including tango.
Chicago driving. Seriously. If you find yourself in front of me on
the road and are unsure of what to do and stop in the middle of the
intersection because there is construction fixing pot holes, you
can be sure I'm going to yell explecitives at you.

fave book: Catch 22 is my favorite novel but some of my favorite
authors are Jane Austen and Gabriel García Márquez
Movie: Bringing up Baby or really any comedy with Cary Grant, Show:
True Blood, Game of Thrones, Downton Abby and Father Ted
Music: Almost everything. I hate pop country but Patsy Cline is a
classic. I love classic rock, blues, jazz, classical, traditional
latin music, reggae. Not that big on many current things though
besides The Black Keys and stuff that comes out of New Orleans. Ok,
also started listening to XRT, it has some good stuff. I won't get
your reference to any super current pop music however, rap or hip
hop. This also means those new, obscure Indie rock bands with
ridiculous names. I won't judge you for liking/listening to them,
but you better hell as not judge me for not having any clue who
Won't lie, I despise anything that is or might be mistaken for
techno. Food: Thai is my favorite but I'll try almost anything
except bugs. The one exception to that is escargot drenched in
garlic and butter. I tried chicken feet once at a dim sum place in
China Town....at least I can say I tried it!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
There are so many reasons, but let me stop you with some reasons
- If I can't tell what you look like because you posted artsy pics.
Oh, a picture of your blurry reflection/shadow. That's great! Save
it for Facebook
- If you think it's acceptable to end something with a woman by
randomly stopping all communication. Can't tell you how much I hate
that, it may hurt, but just tell me you aren't interested anymore
so I know
- If you are going to need me to open that pickle jar for you
because it's just too difficult.
- If you own a dog that could be described as a Toy
Somethingorother. Don't kid yourself. It's a rat.
- And after the worst date ever I find I have to add this in; I'm
really not interested in a polyamorous relationship. Seriously,
dude. I don’t even know how to respond to that business except
